I have installed Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 community, but when I run:
mex -setup
I get this error:
Error using mex
No supported compiler was found. You can install the freely available MinGW-w64 C/C++
compiler; see Install MinGW-w64 Compiler. For more options, visit
https://www.mathworks.com/support/compilers.
I installed Microsoft Visual Studio in another drive (not C) on Windows 8.1. I have attached the screenshot of Visual Studio components that I have installed.
>> mex -v -setup
Verbose mode is on.

@Andy Dun: I decided to use another compiler at that time. But again I am going to test with new version of Visual Studio. I will let you know if I could make it work

Are you sure you installed the C package, and not just some other packages like VB or something? If so, then call the Mathworks and ask them. I had the same problem (only VB) and it couldn't find a compiler until I modified the installation to add C.

I guess so! See the image I have attached. I modified the installation a little, but I left things which I thought was needed.
